This is all that this city council has done is higher taxes and fees.

How can anyone of them talk about encouraging businesses into Fitchburg?

Welcome to "Taxburg" where all taxes and fees are high. Are insurance rates are high also due to high crime rates that go un addressed.

Discouraging businesses is what we here in Taxburg stand strongly for, we are the land of Antonucci and Unitil also. Stay out as we spend a lot of time discouraging businesses and new residents to move into Fitchburg.

Have you ever considered that the city has to raise taxes to cover for your worthless criminal ass?

At least Keith and Debbie never killed an unarmed guy in Boston and served time for murder. So they've got that going for them. That's a heckuva lot more than you can say convicted felon boy.

A convicted felon getting elected? Hahaha, the voters aren't that stupid.

Unfortunately a small percentage of registered voters vote. I run for office to encourage others to run. It has been the same ole here in Fitchburg.

We need a change or nothing will change again. I attempt to put the fire to their feet and I will continue.

You are corrupt, a real loser and a POS! There is a running bet on how long it will take your wife to divorce the POS she married!LMAO

First of all most registered voters do vote. The majority of the city population is not registered and those people have no interest in the city.

The welfare population could care less about the city, they don't have to pay taxes.
Didn't your parents tell you to stay out of politics? get a real job.

And we have you commenting when you don't pay any taxes period. You don't pay property taxes b/c your poor parents own the house. You don't pay excise taxrs b/c you had your license revoked (and rightly so). You don't pay income taxes b/c you're on the SSDI Cuckoo check. Heck, if we can believe your constant palaver and perfidy about you not smoking and drinking (and I'm not sure on eiither count), you don't even pay cigarette or booze excise taxes. So who are you to talk you jerkoff?

A little 411 Fitchburg isn't the only city where taxes increase. Hey, Halloween is this month! What are going to dress up as? Maybe a psychopathic maniac?
